Coe is a gender-neutral given name and surname of British origin. It originated as a nickname deriving from co, the Middle English word for “jackdaw.” The smallest members of the crow family, jackdaws are intelligent, love shiny things, and are known to recognize human faces and respond to eye contact. Why not pay tribute to these underappreciated birds by naming baby Coe? Its meaning, combined with its similarity to Poe, gives this name a gothic edge that’s sure to make baby the coolest kid in any room.
